Common information


The Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR) established its Regional Office for Central Asia (ROCA) in Bishkek in 2008. ROCA works to assist authorities, national human rights institutions, civil society and the international community to respect, promote and protect human rights. In August 2018, ROCA in Kyrgyzstan launched the Judicial and Social Equality Program (JSEP). The programme is designed to comprehensively address inequality and discrimination issues in Kyrgyzstan, with a specific focus on establishing an environment conducive to human rightscompliance in which non-state and state actors are empowered to safeguard stability in a pluralist and inclusive society for marginalized groups. The project envisages implementation of the State Capacity and Awareness Raising components aimed at increasing understanding of equality and non-discrimination among state bodies. For the implementation of action within these components OHCHR ROCA requires the assistance of a national expert who would introduce non-discriminatory expertise and will contribute to the development of educational materials and guidance for the state bodies, under the overall supervision of OHCHR’s Deputy ROCA and direct supervision and guidance of an OHCHR Human Rights Officer.
